The June issue of the Washingtonian highlights the top 100 bargain restaurants in the Washington metro area. Most of the list highlights places in various suburbs, but Ethiopic (401 H St) represents H Street.
The Washingtonian touts Ethiopic as a "light-filled newcomer to the area's Ethopian-restaurant scene [that] doesn't tone down its spices. The chef, an alum of Zed's and Dukem, spikes her dishes with healthy doses of jalapeno, ginger, and garlic." They recommend the butcha, doro way, kifto, and vegetarian sampler.
